Making heroes into homeowners is the aim of the Boot Campaign, a unique fundraising effort backed by Cherry Creek Mortgage Company in Valencia. Their efforts ensure that service members, veterans and their families have support and access to one of the most basic human needs – shelter. The Boot Campaign is helping to facilitate forever home ownership for wounded service members through mortgage-free home presentations alongside Military Warriors Support Foundation, a program partner of the Boot Campaign.
The Boot Campaign is a national non-profit organization dedicated to cultivating awareness, promoting patriotism, and providing assistance to military personnel, past and present, and their families. Started in 2009 by five women from Texas, known as the Original Boot Girls, the Boot Campaign encourages Americans to “get their boots on” as an easy and tangible way to express one’s patriotism and gratitude for all who serve. Proceeds from all Boot Campaign combat boot sales, events, direct donations and corporate sponsorships fund the campaign’s five assistance initiatives: Jobs, Housing, Wellness, Urgent Assistance and Family Support.
